    Happy Birthday!

    Leaves on the Current is a lovely name, indeed.

    My philosophy of life is that life is a river (thanks, Siddhartha), and that we are swimmers in the tide.  The analogy is that where you end up in life is like where a swimmer ends up in a river.  They may swim as hard as they can to get where they want to go, but also the current determines the course and the destination to a great extent.

    If only I could stop swimming and just let the current take me where it wills... like leaves...

    ...its a beautiful metaphor.
